    "I am one of the former staff members of Villago Middle School. It is one thing to see it from the child's perspective, which is many times valid. Even parental concerns are valid many times; however, it is different from the staff perspective. The current principal, is pushing "spark," which is rehashed attachment theory - a criminal justice theory that doesn't work. The principal is pushing education theory that is making students and staff more and more self-centered. Another issue is that the staff, in many meetings, exhibit the same behavior that they condemn in students. This is hypocrisy at its best. Another issue, as well, is that meetings between teachers have become gossip sessions instead of a time to address concerns. This raises the concern that there is special treatment among the staff. Upon recognizing these issues, I realized that it is causing a trickle down effect on students and new staff members. With staff members attempting to destroy each other, it is no wonder that the education system is falling apart. I hope that parents can work together to reverse the tide of darkness that looms over our once brilliantly shiny education system."

    "This is one of the worst schools I have ever had to attend. The staff is disrespectful and looks down on the students. They don't care if the students are learning the material that is being taught. I have struggled with math a lot this year and I think it is because one of our math teachers quit mid-year and the staff couldn't be bothered to find a replacement. During the year we had people come in to grade our school and the teachers were told to be on their "best behavior". The staff doesn't care about the students and I am glad to be going to high school finally."

    "As a teacher at Villago, we have an outstanding team of educators who are each passionate and progressive in our teaching styles. Most schools are struggling to embrace the Common Core guidelines, while we have teachers who have already implemented them into our classrooms. As with all schools, there are weaknesses but overall our programming before, during and after school encourages student leadership and exploration . We have an outstanding Student Council, Band, NJHS, drama, robotics, science olympiad and journalism program. We have high expectations for both academics and behavior. Our staff doesn't solely believe in a punishment based system. We work with each child to develop a relationship first, and use referrals as a final resource. Your child's experience at Villago would be a strong one."

    "Villago Middle School is great.....if you would settle for mediocrity. I am in all the top classes and am still not challenged. The teachers are great but they are not able to give us all of their knowledge due to what the school board has said. Even the gym classes are bad, we can't even play dodgeball with real dodge balls. The only thing I must say is that if you are forced to move here go to Villago, it's the best you can do for now. After you get out of middle school though, LEAVE, the high schools have nothing to offer. Move the Chandler area and go there, again LEAVE after middle school."

    "There has been quite a turnover in staff this year. The people in charge are creating a lot of stress in the school. They are worried the kids won't pass the aims test. Shouldn't they be concerned that the kids aren't learning how to reason out things? There are many great teachers there but they are not treated with respect by the admin. Of course there are some who get better treatment than others. The students are not treated equally either-- some are allowed to act up & don't get in trouble. Something is wrong there."
